Default Choke tube question

I have a Remington mod choke tube in my 870. I was wondering if it would be ok to use slugs in it. Pacifically the pdx1 round.

you should be fine unless the slug is rifled then you need a specific choke the tighter the choke the worse off it will be.

You can shoot any slug you want to out of a modified choke a rifled slug will shoot the best if you wanna shoot a sabot slug you need a rifled barrel or choke tube

Ok I gotcha if u get back into it try some hornady sst slugs or lightfields they both are good shooting slugs just expensive.....I live in Ohio so shotgun or muzzleloader is all that is legal to deer hunt with here so I have tried about every slug/choke combo lol
